I ask because every time Apple launches a new product, it’s front-page news at CNN.com. Like it is right now for today’s announcement of the iPad 2. Here’s the lede:
With a surprise appearance by CEO Steve Jobs, Apple debuted the iPad 2, updating the gadget that’s become practically synonymous with tablet computing.
I apparently don’t understand the difference between how CNN reports Apple announcements and what the world would look like if Apple bought paid advertisements on CNN’s front page. As far as I can tell, they’re the same fucking thing.
